Calculated characteristic

Hi PM experts,

in our scenario we have classified technical objects (functional locations and equipments), but we need to get some characteristic calculated and not inserted by users.

EG: for a particular type of functional location there is a characteristic that might be obtained by the product of two other char of the same object.

Do you have any idea on how to obtain this ?

Thanks in advance

Andrea

    Andrea,

    You have a few of options:

    - Use variant configuration to determine the values. This might mean using class type 300, or changing the standard 002 class type.

    - Append a new field to the relevant table (e.g. IFLO) and get a user-exit to populate the value (e.g. ILOM0001 at FLoc save). Then use a reference characteristic to look-up the value in the appended field.

    - Use a batch program to update the characterisitic

    - Etc
